This restaurants appears near the top of almost every Bruges restaurant guide there is, small central restaurant run by a husband and wife team. The food is a more modern, fresh approach then the majority of Bruges restaurants, which often have the feeling of a decaying gentleman's club with a 1970s menu to boot! A lot, however, for the two... More

Just one street away from the main square, De Stove is small and has the atmosphere of being a favorite restaurant in a village. We were welcomed kindly and simply, and had a marvelous meal. The duck

A small, intimate but precious space, where you’ve got the feeling of being home, among friends you can trust. Walk just few steps from Brugge’s Market Square and you find this peaceful restaurant. Lamb fillet (with potatoes, when possible) is extremely tasteful and satisfing. For those who prefer fish dishes, there’s a wide selection. Home made desserts are recommended both... More

Thank you for making our day so special. My wife was heavily pregnant and we were greeted, welcomed and looked after from start to finish. A husband and wife team that couldn't do more. Please visit De Stove. They work so hard and the food is amazing. If its an evening reservation then make sure you book. Relax and enjoy.... More

We recently visited this lovely little restaurant and were not disappointed! The food was amazing, cooked by the husband while his wife provided the exceptional service. It is a small, intimate restaurant which was enjoyed by both couples and a family the evening we visited. One of the best restaurants we have visited.

Small restaurant in which the husband (cook) and wife (hostess) obviously take pride. We both ordered the fixed-price tasting menu with wine. All the dishes were perfectly prepared, inventive and generously proportioned. The paired wines were delicious in themselves and suited the courses very well. The service is not as rapid as in some other restaurants, but if you inclined... More
